Sassy Keys on SoundBetter

Versatile, creative and inventive musician who can record acoustic piano for your project.

I've recorded acoustic piano over many different projects ranging from pop, rock, vintage and alternative to classical genres.

When I'm not working on my client's projects, I'm busy working on my own piano compositions and learning some challenging pieces.

I grew up playing piano every day. I studied Music Technology at University and went on to achieve a Masters in Music.

I'm extremely dedicated and always endeavor to make sure the client has everything they need and are 100% happy with the end result.

I tend to record stereo with a pair of Oktava MK 12 microphones through a PreSonus Studio 26 Interface.

Please feel free to get in touch and we can discuss how to get your project to the next level, thanks for stopping by!

  1. Review by Heart Atlas

    Once again Liam did an excellent job. He provided beautifully recorded takes on his baby grand piano, with particular attention to dynamics and articulation.

  2. Review by Heart Atlas

    Liam has provided piano parts for several projects. He has shown a really responsive and positive attitude, and has been very detail-orientated. He is both an accomplished player and a sensitive engineer, and has coaxed some very beautiful recordings from his baby grand piano.

  3. Review by keith k.

    Liam did an amazing job on my song. Besides his in the pocket playing, the piano he records on is warm and vibrant. I plan on getting his input on more material in the future.

    Third song working with Liam. Once again he worked hard to get the performance just right and delivered excellent sounding tracks. Great experience.

    Great follow up service. Needed to add a small lead-in fill to his piano part, and Liam turned it right around and delivered a beautiful stereophonic track.

    Working with Liam McCollum was an honor and a great pleasure to me!
    I recorded violin lines (arco and tremolo) for his stunning cover remake.
    I'd be very glad working with Liam again!
    Thanks loads!

    Liam was professional throughout the process and laid down a solid piano track. Even went above and beyond creating two versions to give options.
